CNN: Ford and ad agency WPP apologized on Monday for offensive artwork depicting women tied up in the back of a Ford Figo, a car available in India.
The cartoonish drawings were never part of a paid campaign but were part of “a creative exercise by a team that was submitting for an ad competition,” according to Chris Preuss,Ford (F, Fortune 500) spokesman for WPP. “They were actually posters uploaded to a website, which is where it all took off from.”
Are these guys kidding me? Look, I understand the fact that the subject or rape is touchy, especially in parts of India right now. But what the fuck does this have to do with the India gang rape case? Just because the Ford Figo is “a car available in India”? You know what else is available in India? Everything. Just another case of yellow journalism and sensationalism. Throwing the term gang rape in an article that has nothing to do with gang rape is ridiculous. Is it about rape? Possibly. Maybe they were just filming a porno. I’ve seen shit like that before. Sept it was in a van.
And by the way, I’m going to say what every guy is thinking but is afraid to write. This is not a “gang rape” or a “gang bang” because there are more females than males. It’s just a “rape” or a “bang”.
Rape is bad. But 3-on-1 bangs are great when they’re consensual.
